Great bit of nominative determinism: "Hong Kong-based investment firm led by Asian billionaire Li Ka-shing."

No wonder my old Phonogram won't play vinyl any more, Paper Monitor! It only works on circular records.

Funnily enough Rob (Thursday's letters), if you ever go to Milton Keynes you'd be forgiven for thinking you're in the US. It's basically a large retail park, built on the grid system and designed for traffic with not a pedestrian in sight. They've even got those traffic lights that hang down over the middle of the road from a wire and everything. I wouldn't be surprised if they soon start driving on the right.

I whole-heartedly agree with the correspondence regarding trouser sizes (Wednesday's and Thursday's letters). The market that trouser makers are producing for seems to be shrinking. I take a 30" waist and catalogues start at 32". And even though I am skinny could I please have some room in the leg? When I kneel down I cut the circulation off at the knee!

Regarding clothes sizes, I found that shirts are now predominantly "modern fit" which means much slimmer than previously for the same given size. That confuses me because I thought that people were getting fatter these days. Or do I have to wait for "post-modern fit"?
May I remind those people that design trousers for our national retail chains that I have got long legs and I am also morbidly obese. Your trousers fit perfectly. Thank you. This elementary knowledge of physiology is most welcome.

John, (Thursdays letters) yes, that's what I called it too when it tried to land on my bird table and squashed the thing flat. I'll get my coot.
